Bitcoin: Silk Road to Hell

 

So bitcoin is a can’t miss investment that is guaranteed to go up, right?  Steve Patterson joins me to discuss some of the reasons why that might not be the case.  Is bitcoin too volatile to be a useful currency?  Is bitcoin the AOL of cryptocurrencies?  How do you perform a valuation of bitcoin as you would other investments?  This fun conversation goes in many directions, covering topics like the Silk Road website, the NSA, pornography, gambling, privacy, competing currencies, and more.

Street Smarts with Jim Rogers

 

I was privileged to have the chance to speak with legendary investor Jim Rogers.  Jim is one of my favorite authors, as his books are not only full of great investing advice, but they also hold a wealth of lessons that are useful in all facets of life.  We spent much of the time talking about his latest book, Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets, which details his journey to this point in his life.  It is quite possibly his best book yet!

 

 

 

Jim is a hero of mine, having already accomplished two of my personal goals.  One, he “retired” from his day job, and then began “working” for himself investing his own money for a living.  Two, he then became an accomplished world traveler.  I too am working toward both of these goals. 

 

 

 

I have to admit, I was a little star struck during the interview because I admire Jim so much.  If I didn’t have a few talking points written down ahead of time this could have been a VERY short interview, as my mind was blank for much of the time.  :)  Fortunately, Jim cared the day and the show still turned out great.

And definitely check out his books.  Street Smarts and A Gift for my Children are required reading for anyone, not just those who are interested in investing:
